Are you legally by CA laws allowed...

to work 2 shifts at regular pay within 24hrs?
For example:
I came to work at 11pm I get out at 7am and then I have to come back 8hours later which is 3pm til 11pm.
Wouldnt the second shift be concidered over time?

And how about if I came to work from 3pm to 11pm and then back in the morning at 7am til3pm?

I am trying to investigate this threw but I'm having a hard time finding out my answers..

  • In Alabama if you have 8 hours off, that other shift is considered next day.

  • no if you have 8 hours off in almost every state it's not considered over time.... overtime is when you pull those shifts back to back without time off between.

  • in ar any time over 8 hrs in one 24 hr period is considered OT regardless of an 8 hour gap between shifts

  • No, that wouldn't be overtime. You started your first shift on one day, and started the second on another. I'm assuming you are a nurse or something based on the shift. Check your employee handbook to see what they say about overtime. It may just be anything over 40 hours in a one week period.

  • Check with your local government. It varies by state.

  • As long as you have 8 hours off in between, its not overtime.

  • lol no im not a nurse. if i wasnt so eww about needles and blood i probably would be.. i actually work at a hotel as a front desk clerk and the one incharge of making the schedule is a total idiot... since we are fully staffed there is no need for us to work like this.
